The daughter of French singer Serge Gainsbourg and British actress Jane Birkin, Charlotte Gainsbourg is no stranger to performance arts. She made her first film as a teenager in Parole et Musique (Love Songs, 1985; directed by Élie Chouraqui). Gainsbourg went on to work with such prominent filmmakers as Agnès Varda, Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, Jacques Doillon, Eric Rochant, Bertrand Blier and Andrew Birkin.
In 2009, she won the Best Actress Award at Cannes for her role in Lars von Trier’s Antichrist. Most recently she starred in L’Arbre (The Tree, 2010, directed by Julie Bertucelli) and in Melancholia (directed by Lars von Trier), which won the 2011 European Film Prize for Best Film.
